Just returned from our first trip to beautiful Captiva Island. I have a gluten allergy and have eaten at many many restaurants and even when they didn't have a dedicated gluten free menu were able to accommodate me in some way. This restaurant is NOT one of them. We decided to try KeyLime Bistro because of it's close proximity to... More

Came for breakfast and it was horrible. Staff were incredibly unfriendly and treated us like it was a bother to them. The interior is filthy including the tables and menu. The food was very poor - stale waffles you could only cut with a steak knife and eggs Benedict that was mediocre at best. Not a pleasant experience at all... More

We have lived on Sanibel since 2012 and have dined at Keylime Bistro several times, and even once before moving here. Every experience has been excellent. The food is excellent and reasonably priced, the service is attentive, and the live music and comfortable outdoor seating adds up to a great dining experience. The menu is varied and I would recommend... More

We enjoyed our meal here but found it a little pricey for what it was and compared to other places on the island

We' were in Sanibel in June of this year and drove to Captiva for breakfast and some shopping. We love this place. Have been there several times in the past for breakfast and took our friends. The atmosphere is really great As we dined outside and could catch all the activity. Breakfast was wonderful and a most delightful way to... More

We ate here because it was one of the few restaurants near Southseas with a full bar. The drinks were great, they actually had a Zombie on the drink menu. However the food was dreadful!!! Had the crab wonton appetizer which sucked. I had the macadamia crusted Mahi which had no taste and was the worst I have ever had.... More

After three previous trips to Captiva we finally stopped in here for dinner last week! We sat inside as it was still a little too warm for the patio dining option at 6pm but during the winter months the patio would be an awesome option. The live entertainers were fantastic and just the right volume from inside! The food was... More

We stopped in for breakfast. I was surprised that no one was there. I ordered an omelette which came with breakfast potatoes and "fresh fruit" which was hard, unripened slices (not good). My husband ordered a Belgian waffle which looked wonderful. The service was quick, and the waiter was attentive. We will be back.

The restaurant has the most amazing food, an amazing location and lovely ambience. It was the same for each of the five years we are coming to Captiva. And then there is the other thing there which never seems to change, the totally unfriendly, disinterested and unnerved staff. So far we still went for the other advantages but after last... More

Actually this place should get 5 stars just for being open when all the other restaurants were closed form 3:30 - 5:00pm. This place was not our first choice, not our second but it was the only place open. I will say the food was good, the nachos were HUGE, our waiter was really good. Will go back just to... More
